Mother Zola Mae White was born August 13, 1930 in Marie, Arkansas to the late Joel White and Tempie E Stone. Mother Zola Mae (White) Standard transitioned to be with the Lord on Saturday March 4, 2017 at age of 86.

On April 3, 1954 in Braggadocio, Missouri she married Overters Standard. They later moved to Benton, Arkansas were they resided. Mother Standard later joined Mount Zion Baptist Church under Pastor Justice and his wife. She loved to sing in the choir and always helped in the church in whatever way she could.

Mother Standard most graciously known as "TT" to family, and "Momma Doe" to her grandchildren. She loved to sew; while sitting in the "blue room" as we called it listening to church music she would make some wonderful outfits for her daughter and herself. In addition, she enjoyed crocheting this was not just a hobby, but was something she was very passionate about and made several beautiful quilts that we still cherish today (her daughter Elizabeth has one on her bed right now). She was also very handy around the house she could change light fixtures, tighten bolts, pulling carpet you name it.

Her husband Overters Standard, her parents Joel White and Tempie Stone, a sister Frankie M Calvin, and a brother Joel White, Jr. preceded Mother Standard in death. Mother Standard leaves to cherish her memories-her one and only daughter Elizabeth (Hubbard) Cooper of Springfield, IL; three granddaughters, Elisa G (Mack) Johnson of St Louis, Mo., Zola L Hubbard of Godfrey, IL, and Clarissa (Richard) Warren of Springfield, IL; one grandson, Henry L Hubbard Jr. of Maryville, IL; six sisters, Queenie E Stone of Evansville, IN, Charlene Dawn of Benton, AR, Earlene Dawn of Dallas, TX, Betty Bush of Omaha, NE, Sharon Rule of Alorton, IL, and Djuanna Chambers of Centerville, IL; one brother, Jimmie White of Benton, AR; ten great-grandchildren; 5 great-great grandchildren; a special daughter, Van Ester Brooks of Caruthersville, MO; a special cousin (like a sister), Jearlean Dawn of Benton, AR; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
